Delicate Tension is the second 12" vinyl record album by DIY home recording pioneer and one-man band R. Stevie Moore. The album was issued in a small pressing by Moore's uncle Harry Palmer's H.P. Music in late 1978. It mainly contains Moore's new songs and sound experiments captured since his recent move north from Nashville TN to New Jersey, all recorded on 1/4 track 7½ ips reel-to-reel stereo tape decks.

The intricate album cover graphics were designed and handmade by the artist.

Delicate Tension was reissued on compact disc in July 2004 by Cordelia Records in the UK. It included 10 bonus tracks, including the complete Stance e.p. from Sept. 1978, as well as rare photos and an extensive email interview by Jenkins.
